Sure I suppose. How of course to implement this is another issue, as errors
get thrown up to /lib/python/ZPublisher/HTTPResponse.py and it would be get
to trap them before then.

But Im just coming off your last suggestion regarding exporting folders with
no subobjects and dont want to dive back into Zope internals until my brain
